We checked out from the Jaldapara tourist lodge at about 11:30 AM and started our journey to Malangi lodge at Baradabri in a Maruti Omni which was pre arranged. It took us around 40 minutes to reach the lodge at Baradabri. On the way we saw the army & airforce bases of Hashimara.

There were mainly two reasons for staying one night in here. First I wanted to do the Chilapota Jungle safari and it was very near here. And second I wanted to visit Phuentsholing in Bhutan which was also near here.

A few words about Malangi Lodge. This is a small lodge operated by WBFDC. It has only 7 rooms. Each room is named after a river of Dooars. It is located in a calm & quiet place and there is a small river named Malangi flowing at the backside of the lodge. Food is not included in the room tariff and they have a canteen operated by local boys. You have to give prior order for having the food over there. The quality of the food was ok over there and the price was also reasonable. The rooms were also ok but there was no TV in the rooms. They had couple of TVs in the common area.

So after checking in I straight away enquired for the afternoon safari of Chilapota forest. The manager arranged for a Maruti Omni and told the driver to go to the checkpost and get the permit done. For entering the Chilapota forest one can go with their private vehicle also, but you need to take a permit & a mandatory guide. Also I was told that for each safari only 12 vehicles can enter the forest.

After lunch we started after 2:30 PM for Chilapota forest. This forest is much denser than the Jaldapara forest. We stopped at various points inside the forest. There was a point from where you can see the Torsha river flowing which was beautiful. We saw peacocks, elephants, bisons inside the forest. There was also a few tamed elephants in a spot. We saw them having their midday meal and also we fed them too. Their food was uncooked rice, daal stuffed inside hays. Then we went to a spot call ‘Nal Rajar Garh’- the most dense part of Chilapota. Our guide told that there was a fort here and we could see the boundary walls and ruins scattered. I enquired about the so called bleeding tree ‘Ramgua’ which I came to know off from other posts in IM. The guide showed the tree and smashed a portion of the tree with a stone. From there the red liquid started pouring. I was really amazed to see this.

We roamed in the forest in our vehicle for around 2 hours and returned to the lodge around 5 pm. There is one SBI ATM at a distance from Malangi lodge. I guess it’s the only in the locality as it remains crowded all the time. In the evening we didn’t have much to do. Stayed in the lodge and watched TV. Since it was the 31st night there were lots of programs happening so enjoyed those as well.

Next morning we woke up a bit late and went to the Malangi river at the backside of the lodge. Took some snaps and enjoyed the natural beauty over there. We had a late & heavy breakfast after 10 am. The previous day I had booked the same vehicle (which we took for Chilapota safari) for going to Phuentsholing. Our plan was to check out from the lodge, visit Phuentsholing and return to Hasimara railway station for boarding the Kanchankanya Exp at 5:25 PM. We checked out from Malangi Lodge after 11:30 AM. The lodge reception had a counter of Ayurvedic goods which was marketed by the forest dept. We purchased some ‘Amloki’ packets and some packets of ‘Dhup’ before checking out.

We started our journey to Phuntsholing which was around 45 minutes drive from there. For entering Bhutan through Phuntsholing you don’t need a passport but if want to visit Thimpu which is 160+ KM from Phuentsholling you need your passport and need to have a permit. After entering Bhutan our driver took us to a Buddhist Monastery which was further up on the hills and the road was really good and reminded me of trips to other hill stations. The monastery was really big and beside it there was a huge picnic spot as well and lots of people have come over there for picnic since it was 1st Jan.

We stayed and roamed there for 1 hr. Took lots of snaps of the monastery and the wonderful view of the town of Phuentsholing which can be seen from there. Then we went to the crocodile breeding centre from there. Saw lots of huge crocodiles and large & baby alligators. Most of the crocodiles were lazy like anything. They were hardly moving. From there we came down to the market place of Phuensholing. We roamed around the shops and had nice chicken & pork momos for lunch from one of the restaurants. We left Phuentsholing around 4 PM and came to Hashimara station before 5 PM. Our train was on time but by the time it reached Sealdah next morning it was 1.5 hours late.
